reform. up on capitol hill. first, confusion over the obama energy policy. for over 75 years people have saved money with...ohhh... ...with geico... ohhh...sorry! director's voice: here we go. from the top. and action for over 75 years people have saved money with gecko so.... director's voice: cut it! ...what...what did i say? gecko? i said gecko? aw... for over 75 year...(laughs. but still trying to keep it contained) director's voice: keep it together. i' for over 75...(uncontrollable laughter). what are you doing there? stop making me laugh. vo: geico. saving people money for over seventy-five years. gecko: don't look at me. don't look at me. at tyco integrated security, we consider ourselves business optihow?rs. by building custom security solutions that integrate video, access control, fire and intrusion protection. all backed up with world-class monitoring centers, thousands of qualified technicians, and a personal passion to help protect your business. when your business is optimized like that, there's no stopping you. we are tyco integrated security. and we are sharper. >> bret:
it is energy secretary steven chew. i was there at the briefing that he gave today and he really went after the president. he said that he lacks the courage hearing lacks the guts to take the liberal side of the party and made his basic point that president obama would pursue and he does in his speech tonight, taxes on the rich, but unwilling to get tough on entitlements which, of course, is an anathema to the left wing of the party. >> while he has refused to agree to some to raise for example retirement for medicare but has agreed to reduce social security benefits by enacting a different method for cost of living increases. white house claims that he has put $1.4 trillion cuts on the table. republicans don't agree all of those are cuts. it counts is savings from ending the wars if iraq and afghanistan, but the president will contend tonight that the country is much further along toward dealing with its spending program, dealing with its deficit problem than republicans will accept. we'll hear a different version of that from marco rubio when he delivers the republican response. >> chris:
, arbitrary cuts would jeopardize our military readiness. they'd devastate priorities like education, energy, and medical research. they would certainly slow our recovery, and cost us hundreds of thousands of jobs. that's why democrats, republicans, business leaders, and economists have already said that these cuts, known here in washington as the sequester, are a really bad idea. now, some in this congress have proposed preventing only the defense cuts by making even bigger cuts to things like education and job training, medicare and social security benefits. that idea is even worse. yes, the biggest driver of our long-term debt is the rising cost of health care for an aging population. and those of us who care deeply about programs like medicare must embrace the need for modest reforms -- otherwise, our retirement programs will crowd out the investments we need for our children, and jeopardize the promise of a secure retirement for future generations. but we can't ask senior citizens and working families to shoulder the entire burden of deficit reduction while asking nothing more from the

[ applause ] >> yes the biggest driver of our long-term debt is the rising cost of health care for an aging population. those of us who care about programs like medicare must embrace the need for modest reforms. otherwise, our retirement programs will crowd out the investments we need for our children and compromise a secure retirement for future generations. we can't ask senior citizens and working families to shoulder the entire burden of deficit reduction while asking nothing more from the wealth yeast and most powerful.
was taken. look at, judy, there's a certain passivity there. there was energy in that room right now. i mean... >> woodruff: well, they're waiting. >> usually there's a milling back and forth and kind of a... >> woodruff: higher energy. people who slap each other's backs for a living. they're good at that. i agree with that. >> it looks like a painting almost. >> woodruff: i'm told the president is right outside the door. but who knows how close he is. but in just a moment, the house sergeant of arms is going to... maybe it's about to happen in a moment. he's going to announce the president. >> watch he does. he comes down three steps, three rows. >> woodruff: paul irving. house sergeant of arms. >> puts his finger on a button. see him? he did that. >> mr. speaker, the president of the united states. ( applause ) >> woodruff: so at nine minutes after 9:00 eastern time, president obama makes his way in. the official plan had been for him to come in a minute or two after. but i guess he has a prerogative of being a few minutes later than what we were told. >> he just can't stop himself. he jus
and is expected to discuss investment in infrastructure and clean energy, all ostensibly without increasing the nation's deficit. beginning the republican response tonight as well from marco rubio. john, a lot of discussion tonight about the tone. the dow is at a fresh five-year high but a couple of wild cards in the form of north korea, foreign policy, a standoff in california tonight, the gun debate. >> the gun debate is one that's thrust itself into the nation's attention span, and the president's agenda, and this is going to only encourage that, but really the tone everybody is looking for is his tone vis-a-vis republicans. the inaugural, he had his elbows out a little bit. he was very newly confident just coming off that re-election. people will be watching to see how aggressive and confrontational he will be with them on the deficit, on the investment proposals he's going to make tonight which are modest but, nonetheless, are there. and on immigration, which is one way republicans are coming his way. >> larry kudlow, tonight you talked about the line between being assertive and confid
through a list of other issues from energy to manufacturing, touched on foreign policy and at the end reached, i think it's fair to say, an emotional crescendo when he talked about gun violence in america and recognized a number of individuals there in the house chamber who have been touched by gun violence. either they're the survivors, surviving family members or who themselves have been victims of gun violence. mark, we were counting, i think, as he went through... i know i made some notes. almost a dozen new initiatives the president announced on everything from international trade to higher education to doing something about the voting experience in america. it seemed like the president was trying to inject some energy into his second term. >> i agree wu, judy. i just want to underline the emotional apex of the evening was undoubtedly the "deserve a vote" chant that the president led when he spoke on gun control and the need, making the argument that our police departments were outgunned by those with assault weapons with criminal intent. and i thought that a speech that quite fr
, climate change, green energy. here's my take. if it was going to work all this throwing more, it's going to work to throw the economy up, it would have already worked. it's more of the same from mr. obama but these government planning efforts have never worked. we have a subpar 2% growth company and they're planning and spending and directing will never work. me? i was just hoping for some real economic growth measures, as i said, like a corporate tax reform. what's wrong with that? keystone pipeline, more limited rnme but it was not to be, at least not last evening. let's talk to our guests. we got a full house tonight. joining me tonight is austen golsby and we're delighted to have kelly ann conway and forbes's magazine executive editor. this is the best economic growth message of the last 24 hours and it came from senator marco rubio. >> presidents in both parties from john frj. kennedy to ronal reagan have known a free enterprise economy is the source of our middle class prosperity. >> i want to start with that. no planning, no government direction, no subsidies, no collective action
to achieve real growth until our economy. one of the best ways to encourage growth is through our energy industry. god also blessed america with abundant coal and natural gas. instead of wasting more money on companies let's open up federal land for exploration. we can grow our energy industry, it will make us energy independent and it will help bring administering back from places like china. simplifying our tax code will also help the middle class because it will make it easier for smaller businesses to hire and grow. we agree with the president, we should lowerer our corporate tax rate so companies will bring their money and jobs back here from overseas. we can also help grow the economy if we have a legal immigration system that allows us to attack the best and brightest. -- attract the best and the brightest. first, we must follow through on the broken promises of the past to secure our borders and enforce our laws. helping the middle class grow also requires an education system that brings the skills that jobs entail. we need to incentivize local schools and career training. we nee
energy should be a part of our energy portfolio but god also blessed america with abundant coal oil and natural gas. instead of wasting more taxpayer on so-called clean energy companies like solyndra let's open up more federal lands for safe and responsible exploration. and let's reform our energy regulations so that they're reasonable and based on common sense. if we can grow our energy industry, it will make us energy independent, it will create middle-class jobs and it will help bring manufacturing back from places like china. simplifying our tax code will also help the middle-class because it will make it easier for small businesses to hire and grow. and we agree with the president, we should lower our corporate tax rate which is one of the highest in the world so that companies will start bringing their money and their jobs back here from overseas. we can also help grow our economy if we have a legal immigration system that allows us to attract an assimilate the world's best and brightest. we need a responsible permanent solution to the problem of those who are here illegally,
of road and bridge building, a green energy security trust fund. he said we could grow through government action and it will not raise the deficit one dime senator rubio responded with the exact opposite. free enterprise would result in prosperity for everyone and the senator, addressing president, i don't oppose your plan because i want to protect the rich. i oppose your plan because i want to protect my neighbors. election 2016 began last night. "varney & company" is about to begin and i tell you now stocks could hit a record high very could hit a record high very soon. today is gonna be an important day for us. you ready? we wanna be our brother's keeper. what's number two we wanna do? bring it up to 90 decatherms. how bout ya, joe? let's go ahead and bring it online. attention on sit now starting unit nine. some of the world's cleanest gas turbines are now powering some of america's biggest cities. siemens. answers. but that doesn't mean i don't want to make money.stor. i love making money. i try to be smart with my investments. i also try to keep my costs down. what's your plan? isha
outdoors. probably some significant emotional challenges. all of this pent-up energy that could have been used for good to go out and take other human lives. chris, we're going to be waking up tomorrow morning and the next day and saying how sad. number one, so sad for the people that christopher dorner is believed to have killed and injured. and number two, that he wasn't able to resolve his own problems. and if there is anything to be gained from this, anything, it's black, white, whatever color, whatever race, wherever we come from cultural wise, we have to work these situations out. but once you get a legal opinion that said my friend, we listen to the case, and that's the way it goes. we have to learn how to take the bad news with the good news in life. christopher dorner could not handle bad news. when it got too heavy for him, he chose to act out against everyone. and the epicenter of his anger and rage was the 10,000 men and women of the los angeles police department. and everybody else in society who would have stood with him. >> yeah, i think he engaged, if he did, in group guil
stories. an through and. >> thank you. that is a huge story. >>> in other news, the international energy agency is now cautioning expectations that higher oil demand growth this year could be overly optimistic. the watchdog group is warning that recent signs of the recovery could be the result of one off factors and not a sustained trend of improvement. so the iea is cutting its oil demand growth forecast for the coming year by a marginal 90,000 barrels a day. also in the news, j cpenney increasing borrowing capacity under a bank credit facility by $ 00 million. up now to -- $100 million. now to $1.9 billion. the retailer expanding an option to buy more at a later date. the news said to be raising concerns among analysts as the retailer works on that turnaround. >>> and conditions on a disabled carnival cruise ship in the gulf of mexico, they're in dispute. the company says it's making passenger -- passengers stranded aboard as comfortable as possible with running water, working bathrooms. this contradicts accounts of some passengers who told relatives about filthy, hot conditions, and l
. see, i figured low testosterone would decrease my sex drive... but when i started losing energy and became moody... that's when i had an honest conversation with my doctor. we discussed all the symptoms... then he gave me some blood tests. showed it was low t. that's it. it was a number -- not just me. [ male announcer ] today, men with low t have androgel 1.62% (testosterone gel). the #1 prescribed topical testosterone replacement therapy, increases testosterone when used daily. women and children should avoid contact with application sites. discontinue androgel and call your doctor if you see unexpected signs of early puberty in a child, or signs in a woman, which may include changes in body hair or a large increase in acne, possibly due to accidental exposure. men with breast cancer or who have or might have prostate cancer, and women who are or may become pregnant or are breastfeeding, should not use androgel. serious side effects include worsening of an enlarged prostate, possible increased risk of prostate cancer, lower sperm count, swelling of ankles, feet, or body, enlar
in infrastructure, investing in energy, all of those are ways to make our economy stronger. that will be the central focus of the president's remarks this evening. >> texas republican congressman randy newbauer joins us on capitol hill. good morning. >> good morning, how are you, carl? >> good. a lot of discussion today whether this will be an echo of some called the cockiness, the confrontation of the inaugural. is that what you're looking for today? >> i think so. i think what the president laid out in his inaugural address is more taxes, more spending and more government. i feel like we're just going to get the details of that tonight. >> there's been a lot of discussion about how you go about with a big agenda. some say it's his last chance to go big. when you still have so many economic anxieties at work. do you think tonight's speech will be about jobs and middle class, or will it bleed into guns and immigration? >> i think it will be a little of both. i think what the president owes the american people is an explanation of why he wants to continue down a road where it's not working, we still
is not the answer. he says it is time to educate our children, subsidize new forms of energy, and rebuild our infrastructure. president obama's for the state of the yen, the first of his new term, and how do we pay the bill? >> nothing i am proposing should increase the deficit by a single dime. >> the president offered more of the same, higher taxes and more stimulus spending. >> the president wants congress to, with $40 billion to improve infrastructure, wants to raise the minimum wage to $9 an hour, wants a new energy bill similar to cap-and-trade, wants preschool for every 4-year-old in the nation, tax reform, gun control, and citizenship for undocumented immigrants. what are his chances, charles? >> approximately zero. he is talking as if we have a huge surplus, so we can start spending all over again. if the inaugural address was a philosophical statement of what i would call his left liberalism, the state of the union address was a programmatic expression of that. is there a human ill or social ill that he did not have the government's answer to? if he did, i did not hear it. >> mark?
our energy industry, it will make us energy independent. [laughter] false choices like the one the president laid out tonight. [ laughter ] >> stephen: folks, ultimately is this really that big of a deal just because it's the only thing that people will ever remember? [laughter] we turn to fox news. >> i could see for the first time that he was nervous. >> it was very awkward. this response is always a tough spot. here you are in a room with cameras and all that. >> stephen: yeah, hot camera and all that it's a unique situation. when you are president you are never under pressure. let me, folks, let me tell you from experience it's not easy being on tv. you've got the sweltering lights, audience, the cameras, you know, knowing you are being watched by millions that they are judging your every move and -- [cheers and applause] -- they make the biggest things out of smallest mistakes. can really give a person a little bit of cotton mouth. [ laughter ] [cheers and applause] it's not necessarily water where you need it but that's not really a problem because a true professional kno
next door. she wants to kill them now. i see a weird philosophical difference. this is the energy facebook is like anti-energy. all they do is talk to people out there. like you're not doing anything. they don't bring the country forward the way that oil does. i am a hypocrite because i tweet 118 last night. >> eric: weigh in on this full screen. look at low donations. donations to president obama for 5 to 1 versus romney. twitter was 71 to 1. but i'm guessing they don't include the loopholes with the social media. >> andrea: he talks about class warfare he created two classes but not the ones you think. the connected and the not connected. if you are a rich person but a friend of obama you get the tax benefits. if he deems he doesn't like you, you don't. that's why i don't like this. let everybody start out in the same position. examine a flat tax. the companies eventually do pass it on to the consumer. as greg points out, people now are at the pump with the highest gas prices in any month of february ever. the oil companies pay enough in taxes already. >> bob: is it fair to say
increasing taxes and that is not going to take care of this pro growth tax reform. using energy resources. those are the types of proposals that he needs to make. that is what creates a lot of revenue. that would reduce our deficits but that is not the change of the course unfortunately. >> might obama surprise us tonight? larry summers wrote about this. might he surprise us and be more pro growth? >> he is. he has to have a strong middle class. the middle class has been under attack. and i think what you are boeing to see this president is going to want to put middle class people to work. we want to help the middle class but we have had the obama formula. we have had the spending and the temporary tax rebates and we haven't had the growth. where is the goods on this where is the beef on this? >> when we have had what we had in 2008, i think we did pretty well from that. it is true. in order to build this country. you have to have a strong middle class. the top 1% makes 225 times as much as the bottom. i don't think we ought to raise taxes but we need to make sure the middle chas gclass g
single american. and i believe we attract new jobs to america by investing in new sources of energy and new infrastructure, and the next generation of high-wage, high-tech american manufacturing. i believe in manufacturing. i think it makes our country stronger. so that's what we can do together. and that's why i wanted to come down here to asheville. because there's a good story to tell here. i know that a few years ago, manufacturing comebacks, you know, in north carolina, a manufacturing comeback in asheville may not have seemed real likely. because volvo had just left town. this plant had gone dark. 28 -- 22 -- 223 jobs had vanished. and that was a big blow for this area because part of what happens is, when those manufacturing jobs go away, then suddenly, the restaurant has fewer customers. and suppliers for the plant start withering. and it's hard for everybody. it has a ripple effect. but then local officials start reaching out to companies, offering new incentives to take over this plant. some of the workers who got laid off, like scranton went back to school and they learne
on clean energy. i will not walk away from the promise of clean energy. as long as countries like china keep going in on clean energy, so must we. our first priority is making america a magnet for new jobs in manufacturing. this blue print begins with american manufacturing. >>> all of which is to say is what gets said in the state of the union does not necessarily get done, at least not right away. let me ask you, immigration, reforming the tax code, some kind of carbon tax and manufacturing, you know, cleaning up the voting system, raising the minimum wage. what's really going to happen? >> i do agree with senator schumer from before that immigration reform in some form is doable. i think some movement on universal background checks is doable. who doesn't like manufacturing? it's like world peace. we can throw that in there, too. you know, washington is really like groundhog's day and the only thing i noticed from those clips is that boehner and biden keep switching ties from year to year. >> purple ties are in. >> ron, what -- take the other side and be honest with me. what's out the
in the climate and energy debate, i had a lot of talks with americans and british, and they always told us stop this, stop this with the industry, going to a service orientation economy. that is a lot easier than to reduce your emissions. we didn't do it and we were right that we should do it, and, therefore, we needed industrial policy strategy. third, also the challenge, how and what is the content of the program for good work, i'll state it more clear, how can we reestablish more law and order of the labor market? to give you one little example, everyone is looking at germany at the moment, because we are quite strong. we are quite successful, if we look at our unemployment rate. but the truth is, 10 million people and i know it will top of this in the labor -- later panel, 10 million people i will tell you situations, 10 million. i'm coming from the east. one-third of those people in my state return less than -- and, therefore, many other important so i can what is the program for more law and order on the labor market going to support? labor, the movement and to bring it as has been said b
or in the white house briefing papers. subsidies, more subsidies for wind, solar and wind thermal energy. ee research for biofuel and natural gas cars. redesign america's high schools. a new foreign aid initiative. research for brain disease and clean energy and universal preschool. these are expensive. the last one alone the president's favorite liberal think tank the centerrer for american progress issued a proposal a few days ago foreshadowing the president's mention of it in his state of the union and said it would cost $25 billion a year when fully operated. we are talking about a hundred billion dollars a year in additional spending if the president's proposals are enacted and we are at deficit, we don't have the money for it. the question is, can we afford it as a country? jon: you heard with regard to that universal pre daycare kind of thing, universal pre kindergarten thing of thing the president said that forever dollar you spend on that kind of a program you get something like $14 back. >> that's how we justify everything. the president justified the stimulus by saying if we spent
subject, and that is energy. >> today, no area holds more promise than our investments in american energy. after years of talking about it, we're finally poised to control ore own energy future. we doubled the distance our cars go on a gallon of gas. lou: wow, that's true on paper anyway. from 27 miles per gallon to 54.5 because of a deal with the auto makers back in 2011 to have vehicles with an average fuel economy of 54.5 miles per gallon. he didn't double it though, even though it's twice as much because what happened is the 27 -- the 27 miles per gallon is now the deadline for the 54.5 miles per gallon is 12 years away, just a slight exaggeration , 2025 #, that's when that kicks in, seems somewhat futuristic to say it's already doubled, and, by the way, the car makers will not make the changes for the mileage until 2017 models roll out. again, the president, a slight 12 year, little better than a decade exaggeration, no harm, no foul. finally, the claim on the what caused a stirment the federal minimum wage. >> even with the tax relief we put in place, a family with two kids that ear
is a partial list. manufacturing hubs, science research, green energy. highways and byways, universal preschool for the you are urchins, cyber security and upgrades. got to stop i'm exhausted. here is more. here is a man who doesn't feel the federal debt is a problem bob beckel. i don't want to debate the debt issue i want to ask you one specific question. in 50 years the poverty rate really hasn't changed in this country. it's it the same. why haven't we learned from that despite the trillions spent on antipoverty programs? why are we not learning anything? >> what your assumption is the antipoverty programs are meant to lift people out of poverty. what it's meant to do is to keep people from falling into poverty and those in poverty going further into poverty. you know you look at where this welfare money. goes to manufacturing less areas in the inner city no jobs and people on welfare are staying on welfare because they have had no opportunities. >> why don't they run. >> where where are they going to get money to move. >> they can't. >> forced to live in the inner cities. can't go. >> they
. >> of course solar and wind energy should be a part of our energy portfolio. but god also blessed america with abundant coal, oil, and natural gas. >> i mean, he likes the wind and the solar, but he doesn't like the stuff that is under the ground, like coal and oil and natural gas. >> instead of wasting more taxpayer money on so-called clean energy companies like solyndra, let's open up more federal lands for safe and responsible exploration. >> they should have done more studying on solyndra and less studying on that drilling. i'm going to open lands for exploration. >> de-romneyification failed. the republicans' official response to barack obama's state of the union was essentially a new version of the stump speech of the guy who just lost the presidential election to barack obama. and the house that is the emotional centerpiece of the speech turns out is a house for sale. and the criticism of the criticism of the speech is not based on the president's speech at all. and they had him vote no on the violence against women act with 21 other republican guys right before he gave this speech
faster than the swimmer. that energy has to go somewhere and then energy went into light as you saw in the street. >> that is what caused the shock wave and the damage? >> yeah, the shock wave is what happened. and the injuries happened because people went to the window and saw this bright light, because light traveling faster than sound and then the soupd arrived and shattered the windows when everybody was looking out the window. >> is there a way to detect the next encounter? >> even the best radar would be having a tough time to detect something 50 feet or less across. unlike the a astroid that passed the earth yesterday, we had plenty of warning. this fragment that i have with me today is from the impact that happened in 1947. and -- >> that heavy. >> you can say, it's heavy, it's made of iron and nickel and that is different than from what happened yesterday. it was a stoney meteorite as best we can tell. this one did not break up, it came down and made craters in 1947. so 1903 was similar, it was an air burst that wiped out the trees in siberia. >> i'm surprised how heavy it
ones over the years. >> michael: i think that's your energy on this is clearly infectious. the president said he will. the vice president as you well know, has been just a supportive as you have been. we're looking at the house much representatives as it is. how do you think with your experience in congress, how do you think this gun legislation is going to work out in this congress? >> well, you know, i think we have said that we're not all of like minds but i'm hoping that people can be persuaded and we'll be able to move forward on several measures that the presidents have proposed. it is not all encompassing, but they are very well divined divined--defined, and there is a consensus in the nation, when you get over 90% of people saying let's close down the loopholes when you have 60% are saying a ban on assault weapons. this is just not me. this is not just one person or a group of people who have support this effort. there is a new environment in this country. should we take it on? we can't guarantee how it's going to come out. but our job is to take this on with great
in their interest. very helpful senator. he sits on both the senate energy and environmental committees. faced with that kind of opposition, the president says if he has to, he'll by pass congress and issue an executive action. >> if congress won't act soon to protect future generations i will. i will direct. [ applause ] >> i will direct my cabinet to come up with executive actions we can take now and in the future to reduce pollution prepare our communities for the consequences of climate change and speed the transition to more sustainable sources of energy. >> the president did the same on another big progressive issue raising the minimum wage, beating the republicans to the economic punch. >> here's an idea that governor romney and i actually agreed on last year. let's tie the minimum wage to the cost of living so that it final becomes a wage you can live on. >> the republican presidential candidate may have backed the idea but that didn't stop the rest of the party from jumping all over the president. everyone from john boehner to marco rubio called raising the minimum wage a job-killing
obama should be doing everything we can to become energy independent including building the keystone xl pipeline from candidate. >> that is the harbinger whether we need all of the above strategy or if it's campaign rhetoric. activists are determined to block the pipeline and held demonstration to demand they prevent the construction. canada on the other hand argues the u.s. should want oil from a reliable ally. >> people protesting to get more attention in the media than 65% of miles pe americans t prefer to get their oil from canada rather than venezuela or the middle east. >> the administration has said it would likely make a decision by the end of march. either way, it will unleash torrent of criticism. >> bret: jim, thanks. we'll talk about that with the panel as well. do you think the keystone xl pipeline will ever become a reality? let me know on twitter. follow me @brettbaier. those who support chuck hagel as defense secretary indicate they will likely allow a vote after they return from recess next week. south carolina's grahamm from says he will take hagel at his word he does
